Structures & Strategies
Identification of Strengths and Weaknesses Roles and Relationships The success of any strategy will depend on effective performance of individuals. It’s essential each player has a clear picture of their performance in a number of key areas. For example, you should possess many of the role related technical skills necessary to play a particular position effectively.
You should also possess the appropriate physical and mental skills for meeting the specific positional responsibilities. Additionally, you must demonstrate good teamwork and recognise how your role relates to your team mates. Each player has a specific role to perform with different responsibilities when in offence and defence. Roles & Relationships
They have to work co-operatively with each other to ensure that their strategy is effective. For example, the player bringing the ball up the middle on a fast break, must move the ball quickly and safely up the court, communicate with team mates, play the correct pass at correct time and then support the attack.
Question Discuss what you feel to be your personal strengths and weaknesses when performing the fast break as a guard or a centre in relation to roles and relationships. (4) Write 50 – 100 words

Tactics As part of your game plan, you will include the use of tactics. 'Tactics' are quite simply the variations of play used within a strategy. The overall aim of a tactic is to play to your individual strengths whilst attempting to exploit your opponents’ weaknesses.
Tactics Tactics offer variation in play and are often well rehearsed during practice sessions. This is important for a number of reasons: it consolidates the role that each player has to perform it ensures an almost 'automatic' performance it enables variations within the same tactic to be used should a change or adaptation be required.
